Boxing Glove Arrow Lame

Is it just me or does anyone think the boxing glove arrow is pretty lame. It never appealed to me and even when I was younger, I always thought it was retarded?

So is Bat Shark Repellant. And spangly outfits. And magical unbreakable purple boxer briefs. It's comics. Get used to it.

I love the boxing glove arrow. It makes about as much sense as anything else in comics.

I like it. It's not supposed to be taken seriously these days anyway. I see it as a nice reminder of the cheesy Silver Age.

It does seem like the old boxing glove arrow has been retired same with the foldable Bat Shield of Adam West.

Come on it is one of the most classic things in DC Comics. Hell they even did a very cool what if we actually made it short during DC Nation on CN. It is super cool!

@Nightwing4: Well "bro" I never read the comics so I wouldn't care about it being in the comics, just saw the Justice League show with him in it and I thought it was lame. Just my opinion. Luckily they don't have it anymore for recent versions of Green Arrow.

Honestly, I find Green Arrow lame as a whole, so...

Because everything in comics is supposed to be serious -_-

Hardly. It's one of GA's classic trick arrows, along with the bola arrow and handcuff arrow. While one could argue that it's a cheesy holdover from the Silver Age, it does at least have practical value. For Green Arrow to incapacitate criminals without killing them; I'd imagine a punch wouldn't do as much damage as a pointed tip.

I like it! It's more of a signature than a practical weapon but it's nice to keep a small piece of DC tradition alive. Anyone else think that they should make a new trick arrow every 2-3 years?
